Todd is a fantastic Customer Service Representative who comes to us by way of Gwynn Park High School right here in Maryland. Todd entered the pet care field out of a love for animals, but has found the most rewarding part of his job to be the knowledge that he is helping people make a better life for their pets. He is a pet parent himself, with a Chihuahua Mix named Ginger and two cats, Gypsy and Spunky.
Jamilah is one of our outstanding Technicians here at Coolridge. She graduated from Prince George Community College with some online coursework from Ashworth college in 1993. Jamilah has also earned her Animal/Human CPR Certification. Her dedication to happy and healthy pets is obvious, and her desire to make a difference in an animal’s life is one of the most rewarding parts of her career. When she isn’t caring for the animals in our community Jamilah hangs with her friends, goes to the movies, and explores the nearby parks and trails. Her family consists of a daughter, 4 Yorkies, a Maltese, a Shih Tzu, and a Sheltie.
Christina graduated from Sanford-Brown College in 2014 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree, and is now one of our accomplished Veterinary Technicians. She wanted to be a voice for animals and provide support when they had none, and now she gets to live that purpose everyday here at Coolridge. Christina feels particularly rewarded when she can help nurse severely ill pets back to health and watch them go home purring and wagging their tails. She is such a pet lover in fact, she has five dogs: Chico (Chihuahua Mix), Bear (Poodle/Chihuahua Mix/Chico’s son), Ace (Pitbull), China (Yorkiepoo), and Asia (Toy Poodle). Don’t forget her 7-year-old goldfish, either! In her free time, Christina enjoys being a new mom, taking her dogs to the park, kickboxing and baking.

Not only does Kim work hard to care for pets, but she also enjoys helping pet owners understand the decisions they are making about their pet’s health. In her free time, Kimberly focuses on her family and caring for her poodles.
